There is a sense of enigma and an air of uncertainty around the concept of 3D printing because while almost everyone has heard about this cutting-edge technology that lets you print objects in 3-dimension, not many have seen 3D printers up close.
From news of 3D printing finding its way into auto manufacturing and medical research to the promise that someday 3D printers fitted in every home will allow users to create anything from gadgets to food right from scratch, a lot has been written and said about this technique.
If you have been struggling to make sense of that barrage of information, here is [...]
Creality clearly likes its printers big and that’s exactly what its machines found favor for with the 3D printing community across the world.
After the Cartesian-style Creality CR-10, an affordable Creality 3D printer with an impressively large build area, the Chinese manufacturer rolled out an upgrade in form of the Creality 3D CR-10S.
The CR-10S promises to better the 3D printing experience of the popular CR-10 at a slightly steeper price. But does it live up to that promise? Let’s find out:Creality 3D CR-10S Design
The CR-10S imitates its predecessor (Creality CR-10) in terms of its looks and design. It [...]
The world of 3D printing can be a confusing place for newbies and amateurs. With so many 3D printing techniques and types of 3D printing machines, there is bound to be confusion.
What is SLA?
How is it different from SLS or SLM?
Which is better?
Which one offers a greater degree of precision?
Which is more cost-effective?
Before moving on to different types of 3D printers, it is imperative to understand the basics of 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing as it known in technical terms.
Additive Manufacturing in an umbrella term used to describe different types of technologies [...]
Not so long ago, 3D printing was synonymous with exorbitant, cutting-edge technology that was accessible to only big corporations, multinational giants, government agencies, and the uber rich.
The common man with a passion for creating had to make do with Legos.
Breaking the mold are machines like the Anet A8 that have not only redefined ‘budget 3D printers’ but also combined great efficiency with affordability.
Of course, the first choice for anyone looking to foray into 3D printing would be a plug and play kind of pre-assembled 3D printer.
While these pack in a great deal of convenience and are ready to get you [...]
Tevo Tarantula is a desktop DIY 3D printer kit manufactured by TEVO, a young 3D printer company based out of Zhanjiang, China. The Tarantula 3D printer is essentially modeled on lines of the architecture of the classic RepRap PRUSA i3 3D printer, and thus, bears its hallmark of simplicity of design and robust functionality.
The most striking feature of this Tevo Tarantula DIY 3D printer kit is its versatility in terms filament, extruder, and nozzle compatibilities. A thriving online community of passionate users definitely comes a close second.
All in all, the Tevo Tarantula is a highly affordable 3D printing kit that [...]
Tevo Tornado, the latest DIY 3D printer kit to be released by Tevo, is a Cartesian-style 3D printer with a large build volume of 300x300x400 mm.
The real draw for this 3D printer has been its near assembled full aluminum frame, dual Tevo Titan Extruder feature, and an auto-leveling bed with BL Touch.
This new offering from Tevo has been modestly priced at under $400 and is being touted as a viable alternative to Creality CR-10s, and that’s saying something about this 3D printer’s potential given the huge fan base that the Creality CR-10s enjoys among the 3D printing community.Unboxing and setting up the Tevo [...]
